  1. We’ve known Ed for over 40 years. He was always there for us when we needed help for any project, large or small. He and Rosemarie watched our children grow and always included us in their family activities. To us, he really was like one of our family. May he rest in peace.

    If you needed help moving, or transporing used furniture,
    Eddie was always there for me. We had many wonderful talks
    about Poland and its history. He was always reading or
    learning about the present culture. He is with RoseMarie now,
    and they will have a wonderful Thanksgiving together. Patty
